I just got my hands on one and checked it out. now I know the eneloop problem better.
they do need to spec MLP IC's
that way they can keep the design intact but the IC will be far more flush to the board
and allow room for eneloop heads or make the light 2 threads longer and bring the pos contact up
I agree, about the components specs. In height there's currently ~1mm battery shoulder clearance. The space between the components and center needs ~0.25mm more. Raising the contact ~0.50mm in height(3/4 thread) requires retooling and conflicts with design concepts. Energizer Lithiums are working fine. Let's wait and see what develops. I too want to use Eneloops.
Edit: There are only two components that are causing the problem of not being able to use Eneloops.
